Why Acne Is Every Teenager’s Nightmare!


The most difficult part of learning how to prevent pimples is in accepting that they are not a fact of life. As a teen, you know that acne, pimples and blackheads crop up at the most inconvenient times. Why do teens get pimples on a regular basis, while adults seem to outgrow this vexation once into their mid-twenties?

It’s all a matter of your hormones, which cause your sebaceous glands to produce excessive amounts of oil. The good news is that these very oils are what keeps your skin soft and supple. The bad news is that the excess oil is all dressed up with nowhere to go, showing up in pimples. Perhaps your Mom has tried to shore up your flagging confidence by telling you that oily skin means you’ll have lovely skin later on in life. This sort of comfort chat does little to make you feel better now, when you’re getting ready for a date and a big zit suddenly appears!

Let’s face it, at your age, you can’t think that knowing how to prevent pimples will prove 100% effective – one or two will show up now and then – but you can certainly make those few and far between. Here’s how to prevent pimples from being a daily or weekly issue. Wash your face at least twice a day and use natural acne products. As a teenager, and unless your doctor has prescribed it for you, you’re too young to use steroids on your acne problem! Keep in mind that adult acne products can also contain natural products so read labels when buying products to treat your acne!
